democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
after that, jim merrill. first, a news update from c-span radio. >> more on new hampshire this out. emily friedman reports that mitt romney will hold his final campaign rally in new hampshire, the very state in which he launched his bid for the white house 16 months ago. the victory rally will be held in manchester monday night. kid rock will be the special entertainer. as for president obama, political playbook reports "one of the most rebidding national events of the year" -- rivetting national events of the year" happens today when president obama will tour new jersey. he glanced around news time -- in time. an update in the aftermath of the storm. reporting hurricane city has killed the b-1 people along the atlantic coast, and over 8 million have lost power. mayor bloomberg said it could take four or five days before the subway, which suffered the worst damage in the 108-year history is running again. all 10 of the tunnels were flooded. consolidated edison said it could take a week to restore power outages to the outer boroughs. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span
itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations there. now, the very interesting question that comes
democratic businessman and hotel owner jim graves. he is convinced bachmann's failed presidential run is helping him. >> i definitely think people feel left out here. she hasn't been in the district or on the floor in congress. she just hasn't been representing the people. she hasn't been a voice for the people. >> reporter: a run that didn't sit well with some of her constituents. >> i think it hurt her because she really wasn't doing anything for the voters in her district. >> i think that was a waste of time and she wasn't maybe doing her job and i was paying for that? sure. i do. >> reporter: bachmann admits there's been fallout but remains confident. do you think your presidential run hurt you or helped you in the district? >> oh, i think that it -- i think there's both. i think there's a lot of advantages that came from it and i'm now applying that to the run this time and all of the polling numbers look very positive and people appreciate the work that i've done for the district so we're all happy. >> reporter: bachmann's fame makes her a prolific fundraiser and she is spending
it more difficult, houses that are so close together. in fact, abc news' jim dubreuil was on the scene overnight and here's how he described the scene. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11, firefighters and cops during 9/11. this community was hit horribly tonight. then the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was literally right across from us. and as the fire just spread, we waded our way it another home and realized that the parking lot that we were next to, the cars literally started to blow up. again, the fire continued to spread. my understanding it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point. an area they call "the wedge." we thought we would come here and see people wanting to leave. tonight, they're being forced to leave not by flood, not by sandy, but by fire. >> we will be having information as it becomes available from queens. we'll have it for you again. a look at the greater new york city area struck so hard. including amy out there in staten island. >> josh, we have dramatic scenes of devastation coming into us right now.
. three years later a really smart guy named jim milstein who was at the treasury department and responsible for the restructuring of a.i.g. he is a lawyer and investment banking restructuring kind of person. and he put out a proposal which has many common ingredients that we saw from the mortgage bankers association. here the emphasis is on a government agency, the federal mortgage insurance corporation, which authorizes, manages, regulates a series of security identifiesers and -- securitizers and the companies are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ah
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
' jim debrill was on the scene of the fire in queens. this is what he described. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11. the firefighters and cons during 9/11. this area was hit horribly tonight. many expected there would be flooding. and then, the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was right across from us. as this fire just spread, we waited our way to another home. and then, realized, a parking lot we were next to, the cars started to blow up. and the fire continued to spread. my understanding, it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point, an area they call the wedge. we thought we would come here and see people that didn't want to leave. now, they're being forced to leave. not by water. not by flood. not by sandy. but by fire. >> devastation in queens. you see the areas affected in greater new york. we want to go back to staten island. >> that's right. we have more dramatic scenes of devastation coming in right now. extraordinary pictures of a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island. this is a live look
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g

. dan came in here in 2006 after being gone for many, many years to challenge jim walsh. >> moderator: okay, do you want to come in now? >> what's the question? >> moderator: you have not been the subject of the attack ads, but you have a positive message you want out. you have a 60 seconds on an issue of your choosing. >> thank you. i'm a central new york stative born and raised in syracuse, my parents from poland in the 1980s, they came here basically believing that this is the kind of country where you work hard, you can create a good life for your family, and that's not the case anymore. the american dream is far out of reach of too many people so what i support is the green new deal, public investment to put people back to work meeting today's challenges. that means addressing unmet community needs whether it's updating our hundred-year-old sewers in syracuse, developing energy for real energy independence. it support these policies to put, you know, the communities and put money in working people's pockets. i think we need new leadership. i said it before. my opponents represent
to be affected. >> jim accosta is in cleveland, ohio, with the romney campaign, so, jim, we know that both of these men have canceled their events and from the romney folks' perspective, from their campaign, what was the thinking behind it? >> well, suzanne, i think when the president started containsing his events, it probably started to dawn on the romney campaign that it would be difficult to get out there and do a whole lot of campaigning in a time of national crisis. >> as you mentioned, the romney campaign did announce earlier today it is cancelling events for this evening and tomorrow. it is going to go ahead and carry through with an event set for davenport, iowa, later on this afternoon, and then that's it. suzanne, basically this campaign is in a holding pattern. it is in limbo until all of this passes. just so everybody knows, the governor is not going to be down for the next day and a half. they say don't describe it like that. the other thing we don't know where he will physically be. we assume at this point, suzanne, that they are work out those logistics. earlier today at an
to jim gallagher, the fire chief in linden hur en lindenhurst, new york. jim gallagher, explain what it looks like where you are because i've seen a heck of a lot of watter and a house fire. yes? >> yes. basically, part of our water area is flooded in. we have 2 or 3 feet of water there. earlier this morning we had a house fire that we had to fight, about 2 or 3 feet of water we had to go into to get to this house. >> can you tell me how the house caught fire? >> we didn't really investigate that part right now. my guess is probably the electrical, because it was underneath the water and the electrical probably shorted out. >> how much of this do you anticipate over the next couple days certainly with all this water, issues with utility, issues with electricity? is this just the beginning of a long couple of days, sir? >> yes. it's going to be a long couple days with this. definitely we're having power outages in -- minor pounl minor outages right now, but as the storm gets bigger there will be more, especially through the night. >> jim gallagher, we'll be touch with you. i know wate
civil rights bill. we remember him today as one of the last of the jim crow demagogue. he was. he was that. he was one of the last. but when we forget about strofm he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservative. what do i mean by that? what is that? the sun belt it's one of the big stories that is the flow of jobs and resource and population from the states of the northeast and the midwest to the south and the southwest. in the older post world war ii people. they recruiting industries. they were passing right to work laws. receiving lots of fundings from the federal government to build military at the time when the united states was involved in the cold war against the soviet union. so states like mississippi but states like georgia and texas and florida and southern california and arizona and north carolina are being transformed in the postworld war two period by the historic shift as the period of the sun belt dominance. if you think about every president elected from 1963 comes from state of the sun belt. lyndon johnson from texas and richard nixon from california.
angles. we have jim cantor e, he's hole up at the ritz bar down at battery park. we're journalists. >> mike seidel in hell's kitchen. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the weather. the beginning of sandy's effects are arriving up and down the mid-atlantic. winds are expected to reach 90 miles an hour, and already those living near the water have been forced evacuate. today it's expected to hook west and take aim at the northeast coast, leaving tens of millions of people just hours now to prepare. the entire new york city transit system is shut down. schools are closed along with those in baltimore, boston and washington, d.c. meteorologist bill karins is here with the very latest on the hurricane. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule. nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never forge
president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.

.7. >> they are both former governors. george allen was the senator until he was beaten by jim webb in 2006. this is a redemption effort by george allen. he has been through the ringer and got heat the last time for associating with the confederate flag. for making some purportedly racist comment on the campaign trail. he is a more subdued, cooler less fiery george allen. and i would say that if mitt romney runs strong, in virginia, he could tug george allen first over the finish line here. >> bret: tucker? >> in montana, the incumbent democratic senator john tester is challenged by the state's only congressman denny reburg. this should be an easy race for republican. chester barely beat conrad burns six years ago. the republican is being hurt by independent candidacy. a guy named dan cox, libertarian. interestingly, this week, we reported that the group called montana hunters and anglers come out with the spots attacking denny rieberg not being sufficiently conservative. but the surprise the group of hunters and angleers is power play ord and funded entirely by democratic operatives. guys
